new UAS pilots in the making

new UAS pilots in the making

m

January 28, 2024

The first flyable days of the new year were used to train our new staff members Elio Rauth and Baturalp Arisoy in UAS data collection. We are happy that both will join the EORC UAS team. Dr. Mirjana Bevanda explained them the different systems and payloads, from small UAS systems up to large M600 or VTOL systems. Also the different payloads, multi-spectral, thermal and Lidar, were introduced, including their specific properties. However, the actual flight mission planning and sensor geometry settings were the focus of this day, in order to take advantage of the good weather. Our new pilots started with small Mavic multi-spectral and thermal systems and will progress in the next weeks and months to the larger systems to cover 700ha and more.
Actual experiences are critical within UAS data collection, hence Elio and Baturalp will assist in actual field data collections and analysis of on-going projects from Antonio, Jakob and Mirjana to be able to take over the responsibility to fly within their own study sites soon.
